      Childcare for FEAT Meetings

 In an effort to ensure that more parents can attend our FEAT-Chattanooga monthly meetings, Teresa Bruns (Occupational Therapist and FEAT Board member) has generously recruited some of her UTC students majoring in Occupational Therapy to help provide childcare during our meetings.

If you would like to utilize this free assistance, prior to the meeting, bring your child and their necessary items (diapers, juice, books, etc.) to the Children's Therapy Services room on the first floor of the Massoud Pediatric Building. (The first door on your right as you enter from the Erlanger parking garage level 1).
We will post
signs for your assistance.

If you have any questions, please call the FEAT number at 296-0092 and leave a message and someone will get back with you as soon as possible.
